Edible San Diego for Kids Issue #3

Slow Food Urban San Diego is excited to announce the arrival of the Spring 2015 issue of Edible San Diego for Kids. This issue is all about seafood. It features articles written by San Diego kids and a delicious seafood recipe that kids can help make at home. There’s also a gardening activity (hint: what squiggly crawlers help soil to stay healthy?). This issue is a bit more advanced that our first two, so we recommend it for 4th through 6th grade students.

Edible San Diego for Kids is produced by Slow Food Urban San Diego’s Education Committee in collaboration with Edible San Diego. If you are interested in having copies delivered to your school, please email christina@slowfoodurbansandiego.org by April 20th.

You can see the issue online here.

This issue was made possible by the generosity of Chipotle!

UrbanLife Farms Volunteer Day – A great success!

A huge thank you to Slow Food Urban San Diego volunteers who came out in March to help UrbanLife students garden at their farm. Volunteers planted 12 fruit trees and put in 2,500 linear feet of beds for veggies! Do you want to help bring Good, Clean & Fair food to San Diego youth and schools? Contact volunteer@slowfoodurbansandiego.org.

UrbanLife's new farm

Slow Food Urban San Diego is partnering with UrbanLife and we need volunteers to help with gardening. UrbanLife transforms vacant plots of land into self-sustaining urban farms, providing jobs and job skills training to urban youth, cultivating health and wellness education, and growing fresh healthy produce for our youth and local communities.

SFUSD Volunteers working together!

UrbanLife just broke ground on their second location in southeast San Diego. This one-acre farm will employ youth in the area, teach them job skills, and bring healthy produce back into the neighborhood. The students grow all the food themselves, maintain the land and put together CSA boxes. Their wages come out of CSA boxes sold.

Dig, Owen, dig.

Slow Food Urban San Diego volunteers worked alongside the students on Saturday, March 14th.
